  • Difficulty Easy Difficulty
  • Time 50"

Homey chicken thighs glazed in a blend of mustard, dried spices, and honey - baked to juicy perfection. This is a very easy and forgiving recipe. Swap out the spices as needed, and/or play around with the mustards used. Increasing the temperature at the very end helps give the skin a crispier, golden brown color. Try serving this alongside Roasted Root Vegetables for a stellar meal.

Shopping List
  • 8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground garlic
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions
  1. Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Step 2: Stir together the mustards, honey, oil, salt, and spices in a small bowl.
  3. Step 3: Rinse and pat the chicken dry, trimming off any very excess pieces of skin or fat. Place the thighs in an oven-safe casserole dish in a single layer. Spread the honey mustard mixture evenly over the chicken. Use your fingers to gently spread some of the honey mustard under the skin as well, being careful not to tear off the skin.
  4. Step 4: Bake for 40 minutes, or until the juices run clear. After 40 minutes, turn up the heat to 420°F. Let the chicken cook at this higher temperature for 3 to 5 minutes, to get additional color and a bit of crispier skin.
  5. Serve: Transfer the chicken to a serving platter and drizzle with the reserved cooking juices.
